In this article, we will see how to get data from ImmutableMultiDict in the flask. It is a type of Dictionary in which a single key can have different values. It is used because some elements have multiple values for the same key and it saves the multiple values of a key in form of a list. It is usually used to get the Information passed in a Form.



from werkzeug.datastructures import ImmutableMultiDict
data = ImmutableMultiDict([('input', 'GFG'), ('input', 'Geeks For Geeks')])


['GFG', 'Geeks For Geeks']

Now, Let’s see how to get MultiDict data from the form in Flask. With some simple HTML code to make a form and submit it to a flask route. 
After that, the request form object will be used to get the data from the form.

from flask import Flask, render_template, request
app = Flask(__name__)
@app.route('/', methods=['GET', 'POST'])
def home():
    if request.method == 'POST':
        im_dict = request.form
    return render_template('home.html')
if __name__ == '__main__':


Write anything in the fields and press submit
